Healthy Eating & Food Production

One way to build physical resilience is through healthy eating, which means choosing quality nutrition. To truly nourish the body, people need education about nutrition and access to healthy food options. A healthy diet is the first step to a healthy weight, which can reduce the risk of developing chronic illnesses. A healthy diet can also provide the body with the nutrients it needs to function at its best. These nutrients include vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. They work together to support the immune system and to promote overall health. When the body is properly nourished, it is better able to withstand physical stress and recover more quickly from illness or injury.

Organic, locally-sourced food is often more nutritionally-rich and has a positive impact on both the physical resilience of the individual consumer and the environmental resilience of the agricultural landscape. Farming practices that support soil regeneration, protect watersheds, reduce pollution, sequester carbon, and enhance local biodiversity not only benefit the environment but also enhance the health of those who produce and consume the food. To promote physical and environmental resilience, it is important to support food production practices that prioritize the health and well-being of both people and the land.
